DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS AND BECOME A MASTER ALCHEMIST INbATELIER RYZA 2: LOST LEGENDS & THE SECRET FAIRY
Explore Environments in All-New Ways to Uncover Rare Materials and Synthesise Useful Items!
Hertfordshire, 27th August 2020 – Today,KOEI TECMO Europe and developer GUST Studios announced fresh gameplay details for the recently announced Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, taking a deeper dive into the evolved synthesis system. The heart-warming JRPG is set to launch across Europe this Winter for the Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam®; and is the direct sequel to Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, a title that has now shipped over 500,000 units worldwide.
In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Ryza departs her peaceful hometown of Kurken Island to visit the bustling Royal Capital of Ashra-am Baird, setting up her own atelier shop while exploring the ancient ruins of the land. To uncover the mysteries that lurk within the ruins, Ryza will need to traverse her environment in entirely new ways — swinging, climbing, crawling, and even squeezing her way past a variety of obstacles. While some of these abilities may come easy to her, she’ll need the help of the mystical ‘Emerald Band’ to allow her to swing across treacherous gaps, while the remarkable ‘Air Drops’ allow her to dive underwater as Ryza looks to uncover areas with a wealth of materials perfect for synthesis.
Synthesis is a key part of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, as it allows Ryza to take the raw materials she finds in the field and craft them into incredibly useful items for battle, gathering and exploration. The ‘Linkage Synthesis’ system from Atelier Ryza has evolved with greater depth, enabling players to simply fill the Material Loops with the required ingredients to create everything from weapons and tools to medicine. In addition, the newly introduced ‘Essence’ feature now allows players to alter the elemental trait of an item during synthesis, and by altering the essence of a Material Loop the final item can take on brand-new qualities. The “Evolution Link” takes things a step further, as players will now be able to combine two fully synthesised items together and, depending on the items thrown into the mix, might uncover an extraordinary new item.
While running her atelier, Ryza will reunite with her childhood friends Tao and Bos, while also meeting up with some new companions including the kind but reserved, Sherri Glaus; the aristocrat daughter studying under Tao, Patricia ‘Patty’ Abelheim; Patty’s father and ex-knight to the royal family, Volker Abelheim; and the part treasure hunter part thief, Clifford Diswell.
Along with the new gameplay and character details, KOEI TECMO also revealed that gamers who purchase a physical or digital copy of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy during the first two weeks of release will receive an Early Purchase Bonus code for the Summer Fashion Costume Set. In addition, gamers who have save data from Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout will be able to unlock the Classic Costume Set, including outfits for Ryza and her friends from the previous title.
